Wow! Another great weekend! It’s rare for us to label a film a “NEON Hit” in less than 2 weeks, but BLUE JASMINE hit that mark over the weekend (in just under 10 days). In addition, audiences are loving THE SPECTACULAR NOW. These are the 2 hottest indie films in release, and we truly appreciate your support! It goes without saying that we will hold both great films. If you want to know more about either movie, click each title above to visit that film’s official site.
“James Booker, the ‘Piano Prince of New Orleans,’ is resurrected in Lily Keber’s superb new documentary film – BAYOU MAJARAJA: THE TRAGIC GENIUS OF JAMES BOOKER. The documentary features concert footage, eyewitness accounts of the outrageous Booker in action and reflections from fellow New Orleans musicians Harry Connick Jr., Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Aaron Neville and others. 2013’s most talked-about music documentary, the movie captures the essence of this underappreciated virtuoso. Meet Lily Keber at THE NEON when she introduces her film and leads a Q&A session following the screening.” (taken from VSOP Press Notes) This film will play one time only – Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30. Tickets are already on sale at THE NEON’s box office.
On Wednesday morning (Sept. 4), I’m heading to The Toronto International Film Festival. Though I haven’t had too much time to look at the line-up, I’m nonetheless excited to go. If all goes as planned, I’ll see at least 30 films in 9 days. If you’d like to read about my screenings (and maybe a bit about the parties and frivolities), I’ll keep a daily blog that can be found at: http://daytonmostmetro.com/tag/toronto (If you click the link now, you’ll see all my stories from last year…I’ll post my first Toronto 2013 story on Wednesday night.)
Many thanks for your continued support!
